KISS ME SUGARLIPS ON A SUNNY DAY!

Hallelujah! On Saturday, here in Newcastle, we had a sunny day- I kid you not, the sun was out and it was warm and beautiful, so of course I couldn't resist jumping into my gorgeous neon and khaki maxi dress, kindly gifted to me by American Brand, Sugarlips. I picked the Opposites Attract dress out of their super cute selection of dresses myself, but haven't had the chance to wear it yet (except for the initial outfit post).

As I have probably said before, I love the contrast of the khaki against the vibrant yellow - it's just the perfect dress for a sunny day. So I took it out for a walk along to Jesmond Dene, to relax in the sun and of course visit pets corner, where i got slightly freaked out by a pig and surprised at the epic laziness of a goat - she knows who she is.

It was just a perfect day, and my boyfriend informs me that many a lady were admiring my dress - it really made me feel good and a little bit smug that they weren't going to find anything anywhere near as good in any of the nearby retail establishments. You gotta visit Sugarlips for this baby, while your there check out the Indigo Tracks dress - I think it could be worth breaking the spending ban for!

I seriously hope you have all had a great weekend in the sun, don't you think this dress is just as lovely as a summer's day - I hope there are many more to come!

What is your favourite summer dress?

  15. Lovely dress, fantastic colors!

    I thought the pig would be more lazy than the goat! I've never really seen a super lazy goat- they're always standing up, chewing on grass!
